Gate (disambiguation)

A gate is an opening in a wall or fence fitted with a moveable barrier allowing it to be closed.

Gate or GATE may also refer to:

Gate (engineering)

In engineering, a gate is a rotating or sliding structure, supported by hinges or by a rotating horizontal or vertical axis, that can be located at an extreme of a large pipe or canal in order to control the flow of water or any fluid from one side to the other. It is usually placed at the mouth of irrigation channels to avoid water loss or at the end of drainage channels to elude water entrance.

Gate (airport)

A gate, or gatehouse, is an area of an airport that provides a waiting area for passengers before boarding their flight. While the exact specifications vary from airport to airport and country to country, most gates consist of seating, a counter, an aircraft entry or exit doorway, and a jet bridge.


A gate or gateway is a point of entry to a space enclosed by walls. Gates may prevent or control the entry or exit of individuals, or they may be merely decorative. Other terms for gate include yett and port. The word derives from the old Norse "gata", meaning road or path, and originally referred to the gap in the wall or fence, rather than the barrier which closed it. The moving part or parts of a gateway may be called "doors", but used for the whole point of entry door usually refers to the entry to a building, or an internal opening between different rooms.

A gate may have a latch to keep it from swinging and a lock for security. Larger gates can be used for a whole building, such as a castle or fortified town, or the actual doors that block entry through the gatehouse. Today, many gate doors are opened by an automated gate operator.


Gåte was a band from Trøndelag, Norway playing Norwegian folk music bred with metal and electronica. Their style has been referred to as progressive folk-rock. The band was put together by Sveinung Sundli (violin, keyboards) in 2000 and originally consisted of his little sister Gunnhild Sundli (vocals), Gjermund Landrø (bass, backing vocals), Martin Langlie (drums) and Magnus Robot Børmark (guitar, keyboards). Martin Langlie was replaced by Kenneth Kapstad in 2004. The band's name is the Norwegian word for riddle.

Gate (solitaire)

Gate is a solitaire card game which is played using a deck of 52 playing cards. It gets its name because the cards are laid out in such a way that they form a gate.

First, two columns of five cards are dealt face up. These act as the reserve or "gate posts." Then, between these columns, two rows of four cards are dealt, again face-up. These compose the "rails" or the tableau. The spaces for the foundations are allotted over the first row of cards.

The object of the game, like many solitaire games, is to find the aces, place then onto the foundations, and build each of them up by suit to kings.

The cards in the rails are available for play, to be placed on the foundations or onto other cards in the rail. The cards in the rails are built down by alternating color (a card with a red suit over a one with a black suit, and vice versa). Spaces in the rails are filled using cards from the gate posts. If the cards in the gate posts are used up, the top card of the wastepile, or the next card in the stock if there is no wastepile, can be used to fill spaces. The gate posts are never replenished.

Generally, one card can be moved at a time. The most prevalent rule regarding moves of sequences is that sequences can be moved as a whole. However, there is a rule set which does not allow moving groups of cards, effectively making the game harder (mentioned in Card Games Made Easy by Marks and Harrod, ISBN 1-899606-17-3).

The stock can be dealt one card at a time to a wastepile. The top card of which is available for play, either to be placed in on the foundations or on the rails, or to fill a gap on the rails. However, once the stock runs out, there are no redeals.

The game ends soon after the stock runs out. The game is won when all cards are played to the foundations.

Gate (cytometry)

A gate in cytometry is a set of value limits (boundaries) that serve to isolate a specific group of cytometric events from a large set. Gates can be defined by discrimination analysis, or can simply be drawn around a given set of data points on a printout and then converted to a computer-useful form. Gates can be implemented with a physical blinder. Gates may be used either to selectively gather data or to segregate data for analysis.

GATE (video game)

GATE is an action-adventure video game designed by Swiss programmers Henrik Gudat, Jörg Kienzle, and Yann Le Tensorer. The gameplay is comparable to Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda with a top-down view and a mixture of action, adventure, and puzzle solving.

It was first released for the Apple IIGS in 1991 and requires at least 1MB of RAM. A stereo card is recommended since it implements 15 channel, stereo background music. Players are given the option at the beginning of the game to play in either English or French. The game is not hard drive installable since it uses a custom operating system; therefore a 3.5" disk drive is required to play.

GATE was ported to the Macintosh in 1994 by Jörg Kienzle with graphics designed by Valérie Kienzle. The game requires at least 4MB of RAM and runs on 68k or PowerPC Macs running an operating system between OS 6.0.7 and OS 9.2.2. Besides playing the game in either English or French, players can also choose German or Kanji in this version. It is hard drive installable and requires 4.5 MB of disk space. Although it was initially released by Seven Hills Software, Jörg Kienzle made it available as shareware in 1996.

Gate (Sore wa Akatsuki no You ni)

is a song recorded by Japanese group Kisida Kyoudan & The Akebosi Rockets. It was released as the group's first single in two years by Warner Bros. Entertainment and their subsidiary label Warner Home Video on July 29, 2015. The lyrics were written by Kisida and the music and arrangement were created by the band. Musically, "Gate (Sore wa Akatsuki no you ni)" is a rock song that features guitars, drums, and bass guitars in its instrumentation. An alternative version with different lyrics and slightly edited composition was released in January 2016, under the title "Gate II (Sekai o Koete)".

Upon its release, it received positive reviews from music critics. Some complimented the composition, whilst the rest praised the production and commercial appeal. Commercially, the song was moderately successful in Japan, peaking at number 17 on the Oricon Singles Chart and made it their third consecutive top 20 entry. An accompanying music video featured the band singing in a warehouse, surrounded with construction tape and ornaments. To promote the single, it was used as the opening theme song for the first season of Japanese anime television series, Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri.
